• Introduction

    This area has been created to allow CLD practitioners to share views and discuss feedback on the Education Governance: Next Steps  which was published by the Scottish Government in June 2017 following the Governance Review.

    The main driver for this area is the short-term action for the Scottish Government to consult on:

    “Establishing an Education Workforce Council for Scotland which will take on the responsibilities of the GTCS, the Community Learning and Development Standards Council and register other education professionals. The full scope of the functions to be undertaken by this body will be included in our consultation on our Education Bill in autumn 2017.”

    CLD Standards Council Position Statement

    The CLD Standards Council has prepared this Position Statement which will prompt you to consider what this could mean for you and your practice. Over the coming months there will be opportunities to share your views. There will be professional discussion events around the country and on i-develop as well as online questionnaires.

    It is essential that the CLD profession engages in the process of consultation to realise the CLD values, creating an infra-structure that develops and supports quality, competent CLD professionals.
